Excellent Food for Gastrointestinal Issues –
After becoming intolerant to his regular food, my vet suggested switching to a high-fiber chicken and rice dog food. My dog enjoys this food and it completely resolved his gastrointestinal issues. I’m delighted with this product.
A great choice for dry dog food –
Both my dogs like it a lot. I was worried about their weight and about switching to a lower calorie food but it was well received. Have a lot of Blue lower calorie treats they also enjoy. I feel good about the healthy ingredients and variety in all Blue products.
Pretty good stuff –
Fast shipping and great price. My dog really enjoys this food. She gained weight when we first got her so we have tried a few other “healthy weight” foods as well, and ordered this one to mix it up a little. She seems to really enjoy the taste, eats it without any problems, and seems to be maintaining her weight!
